In your home, you generally have a number of faucets or taps that can become worn or begin to leak. If this happens, there could be any number of reasons behind it and if you don’t do something to fix it right away, it could end up costing you a lot of money.
Reasons for leaky taps
One sign that you might need to repair or replace taps is a slow, steady drip. The most common cause for this type of leak is a faulty washer inside the tap as they are usually under pressure to keep the water from flowing, which will need replacing.
If your leaking faucet occurs more at specific times of the day, it could mean that your water pressure is too high, and your plumber may need to adjust it to stop leaks. Too much water pressure might also obstruct water flow from a certain tap, forcing it to back up and leak from a different faucet or even the toilet overflow tank.
Broken pipes or fittings can also be a cause of leaks underneath your taps or faucets, and if these types of leaks are not repaired urgently, they can end up causing severe water damage, especially if the cause comes from too much water pressure.
